Motorcycle Accidents in Indiana: Consider Just This Month ….


Motorcycle Accidents in Indiana: Consider Just This Month ….

 

Motorcycle accidents are usually accidents that result in serious injuries and sadly, it’s usually the motorcyclist who is severely hurt in the crash. It’s understandable: the realities of riding a motorcycle for its freedom of movement and access to the feel of sunshine and rushing wind also make the rider vulnerable to serious bodily injury even in a slow-speed accident.

Add to this the current Indiana laws regarding helmets (read our earlier posts on motorcycle accidents for details, see the right sidebar) and you can understand why our offices work hard for justice with clients and their families who have been the victims of a serious motorcycle accident here in Indiana.

One thing that many folk here may not realize is that motorcycle accidents aren’t that rare in our neck of the woods. Our winters may be severe enough to put convertibles and motorbikes into garages and protective storage but for much of the year, bikers are on our roads, enjoying our scenic roadways.

One Serious Motorcycle Accident Per Week So Far This Month in Indiana

Consider these three accidents, just in September 2014, with our sincere condolences to those hurt in these crashes and their loved ones. Indiana drivers as well as Indiana motorcyclists need to be aware that we’re at a bigger risk of accident and injury here than many of us realize.

1. Indianapolis Accident — September 11

Indianapolis saw another tragic traffic fatality on September 11, 2014, when a Chevy Tahoe collided with a motorcycle at the intersection of 38th and Richardt Avenue. The driver of the motorcycle and the passenger in the SUV both perished in the accident.

2. Brown County Accident — September 14

On Sunday, September 14, 2014, near to the entrance for the Brown County State Park Horseman’s Camp, two people perished when the motorcycle they were riding veered off the road, flipping as it crashed into a tree trunk lying alongside the side of the road, and throwing both the driver and his passenger off the bike. Neither accident victim had a helmet; both died immediately from head injuries sustained in the crash.

3. Fort Wayne Accident — September 19

A motorcyclist driving along west on Interstate 469 as it merges into I-69 near Dupont Road failed to keep to the roadway and left the highway itself, crashing into the ravine alongside the interstate. Miraculously, he survived the crash. He was not wearing a helmet.
